    It’s pathetic to even write an article about this. Have these people really got nothing better to do than look where the champagne is going? They are winners and celebrate how they see fit. Don’t stand on the podium if you don’t want to be involved in celebrations.

    All I hear is comparisons to what we used to have. Time moves on and things change. You’re not going to get the high you used to have when manufacturers ended up having similarly performant cars. This is sport after all and fairness needs to stay even if it eats into entertainment factor. Amount of complainers on this subject feels to have increased lately but I’m wondering if its just nostalgia and nothing more…

    It’s called GP2, watch that if you don’t find car variations interesting.

    This is nothing more than nostalgia. For example I As F1 fan much prefer sitting at home watching a race with lots of data to follow rather than blowing air horn at a grandstand.
    There are numerous other reasons why people don’t do what they used to do before. It doesn’t mean it’s worse, just different.

    Just watched that Bathurst highlights video and it’s pretty impressive. Got to watch next year.

    Has to be 2008 Brazil for me too. In fact 2008 was the first F1 year for me. I guess that race got me addicted to F1 so much.

    1. Hamilton – Most of the time looked unstoppable in the lead. Showed he has an edge in race craft and race pace over Nico. Made no stupid mistakes as in earlier seasons. Was beat in qualifying however I’m not convinced he sets up his car for quali.
    2. Alonso – same old story with Alonso, seems to deliver regardless of car deficit even though his quali pace is still lacking.
    3. Ricciardo – I’m probably offending most of you by placing Ricciardo so far down the list but I simply refuse to believe he’s THAT much better than Vettel. I think Redbull have the 2nd fastest car this season, and therefore I’d expect Ricciardo to deliver exactly the results he got. Whatever Vettel’s problems are, it seems wrong to just explain results gap by Ricciardo’s excellence. Having said that he was very good in races and quali. Never made mistakes and showed good pace throughout the season.
    4. Bottas
    5. Rosberg
    6. Button
    7. Massa
    8. Hulkenberg
    9. Vergne
    10. Kvyat
    11. Vettel
    12. Magnussen
    13. Bianchi
    14. Perez
    15. Grosjean
    16. Sutil
    17. Kimi
    18. Kobayashi
    19. Maldonado
    20. Ericsson
    21. Gutierrez
    22. Chilton

    On TV because very few parents are stupid enough to let their 3 year old kid in a go cart.

    Strongly disagree with raising weight limit to allow drivers to stay at their comfortable weight.
    F1 is a sport of speed and weight proportionally counteracts speed.

    1. Let the teams design cars as fast as they can make them. Too much effort was spent making racing appealing to general public instead of concentrating on ensuring F1 is still a pinnacle of motor sport which it is losing slowly.
    Safety keeps getting better and yet cars get slower.
    2. Driver is part of the team, if team tries to save weight with car why shouldn’t driver contribute to overall package.
    3. Driver is an athlete of sort and just as in any other sport you need to push your body to get result. You don’t see fat runners or short basketball players. Some body types are just not suited to certain sports and so in F1 you need to be small to go quicker. If you’re not then you don’t belong in F1.

    As good as WEC is it’s not on frequently enough and when it happens it’s too long. Perhaps I’m too F1 trained where I have to watch lap times every lap and WEC needs a different approach.

    I’m guessing then Nascar is not at all physically demanding? Can’t see 70 or even 60 year old racing F1 cars at speed.

    What is so sensitive about that information? Who doesn’t know cars are set up differently and higher drag is expected.
    I wonder more why he posted that. Was that his attempt to blame the engineers for not knowing that graph before quali?

    Best Driver: Vettel or Alonso. Vettel for great pace on 30 lap old tires. Alonso for quick in lap when it mattered.
    Worst Driver: Maldonado
    Best Team: Redbull
    Worst Team: McLaren for not ensuring Button does not come out behind Kovi, slow pit stop for Hamilton and not telling Ham how close Vettel was.
    Best Overtake: none
    Best Funny- moment: Vergne on inters
    Most Surprising Result: Button not making any progress
    Least Surprising Result: McLaren screwing up
    Special Mention to: Massa and Kovi for good performances
    Race Rating: 4/10
